Whether for Halloween or just a healthy or allergy-friendly treat anytime of year, this collection of Healthy Candy for Kids is certain to provide a nice variety of options to suit nearly any diet or taste preference. I’ve gathered here all of my favorite store-bought options and recipes!

I’m fairly certain my kids’ favorite holiday is Halloween. How do I know? They won’t stop talking about it until the next Halloween comes ’round. 🙂 Being that social distancing has impacted our usual Halloween fare, I decided to spend some time trying out some new healthy-ish candy finds, as well as recipes from some of my favorite fellow food bloggers! I hope you find you and yours enjoying these picks as much as we have. XO.
